  • The Scottish Labour Party (Scottish Gaelic: Pàrtaidh Làbarach na h-Alba, Scots: Scots Labour Pairty; branded Scottish Labour) is the UK Labour Party's devolved Scotland administrative subdivision. Labour currently hold 23 of 129 seats in the Scottish Parliament and no Scottish seats in the European Parliament. Labour won the largest share of the vote in Scotland at every UK general election from 1964 until 2015, where they made big losses to the Scottish National Party; every European Parliament general election from 1979 until being defeated by the SNP in 2009; and in the first two elections to the Scottish Parliament in 1999 and 2003. After these, Scottish Labour entered a coalition with the Scottish Liberal Democrats, forming a majority Scottish Executive. In a landslide defeat at the 2015 UK general election, Scottish Labour was reduced to having a single seat (Edinburgh South), losing 40 of its 41 seats to the SNP. This was the first time the party had not won the largest number of seats in Scotland since 1959. In the 2016 Scottish Parliament election, Scottish Labour lost 13 of its 37 seats, becoming the third-largest party after being surpassed by the Scottish Conservative Party. At the most recent general election in 2017, Labour gained 6 new seats in Scotland from the SNP, bringing their total seat tally to 7 and significantly improving on its disastrous performance two years previously with a 27.1% share of the vote. This was the first time since the 1918 general election, 99 years previously, that Labour had finished in third place at any general election in Scotland. (en)
